    You know how Juventus can be ruthless. They have no problems of selling their best players( Baggio,Vialli, Ravvanelli, Vieri, Inzaghi, Zidane) if the price is right and they think they can replace him. Nedved will be 32 next summer and that will be their last chance to get something for him. Juve have been playing 4-2-3-1 this year with Nedved in the center and Alex on the left of the “3”. If they were to sell Nedved they could move Del Piero to his best position( behind the center forward) and then buy a real left-winger(Rothen?). How about it?

    chances= 0% Nedved is irreplacable. He is one of the top if not the top midfeilders in the world. and plus, he has been around long enough that i think he gels witht he rest of the team, and to sell him and bring in another player, who probably isnt as good as him would ruin the chemistry and could be disasterous.... Besides, he has made it clear that he wants to end his career at juventus, and by now i think he does have a say in what his future is headed.

    It wouldn't surprise me one bit, for the reasons given by aloisius. I love Nedved, too, but nobody is ever irreplaceable.

    Really. I think the management has more sense now. It took ages for Nedved to really make his spot in this team, and last year the started reaping the rewards. Davids is better shot at leaving (since its apparent he wants to go) and even though Juve wont be getting any money for him. I doubt that they are gonna scrap that many essential parts, retool especially since they got to the CL final last year. But I guess if Lippi keeps his word and calls it quits at the end of this term, I can see some fire sales to build around a new coaches philosphy.

    But who's going to pony up the cash?

    Of course Nedved is not irreplaceable, but unless he loses form (and I don't think that's going to happen), who's going to shell out such a hideous sum of money for him as Real did for Zidane? Real can't possibly need another midfielder, Barca have Dinho, Milan's midfield is full, so is Bayern's, Chelsea's full at every position (I think), Arsenal won't have the cash with the only choices are really ManU and Inter.

    I can't see Juve selling Nedved to an Italian team, and would United really replace Scholes? (Liverpool is an outside bet, but Houllier isn't that smart.)
    So even if Juve was offering to sell him for such a huge amount of cash, who exactly would buy him? If you could return him to Lazio for a nominal fee, however, I would be mightily obliged ;)

    It would be a stupid move if they got rid of Nedved, but everyone has a price ... aka Chelsea

    He is one of the very best players in the game today. But we can say the same about ZiZi, Ronaldo, Beckham, Figo, Ballack and others when they were sold.

    yes you can say anyone is replacable, but i think nedved is an exception.... i didnt get to watch the game today, but i think the result speaks for itself, nedved can really carry the team on his shoulders..

    Usually, here in Italy, when such a big name is planning to leave a top team, immediately sport newspapers start to spread a lot of fuss.

    This is absolutely NOT the case for Nedved: he wants to end his career with Juve, Juve wants just the same and the supporters would be very upset if Juve sells one of the finest players she has ever had. Juve never wants their champions to leave: if our team sells someone there are serious reasons behind that choice.

    Baggio: couldn't get along with Lippi, and also wanted guarantees that he played every game. But with a jounger and more promising talent as Del Piero in team, his place in the starting 11 couldn't be assured.

    Vialli: HE wanted to leave Juve, because he felt he needed new motivation and he choose England. But Juve was in his heart, and his leave was not traumatic. He'll be back in Juve as a manager, or maybe as the next coach after Lippi.

    Vieri: he has always been a "nomad" (changed team every year), plus he's an unstable man and can braech the team. Anyway, he was not too sad about leaving.

    Ravanelli: he publicly pissed off Lippi after being subsided in a serie A match.

    Inzaghi: couldn't get along with Del Piero. This is probably the only case in which the player didn't want to move.

    Zidane: couldn't stand the "dull and boring" Torino anymore, wanted to have fun in the spanish "movida". Plus, his wife wanted to go to Spain. Abyway, we made a gain with Nedved: in his "bad days" Zidan was a ghost, losing lots of balls and playing "against".

    Yep, Nedved is world-class. How long has he been with Juve and where did he play previously?

    Nedved came to Juventus from Lazio in 2001 (paid for with the motherlode of cash Juve got for selling Zidane - Buffon and Thuram also arrived at the same time).

    He had been with Lazio for five seasons, helping them to their first European trophy in the last-ever Cup-Winners Cup in 1999. He had the game-winner in that contest, a one-time volley every bit as good as Zidane's in the CL final two years ago with Real. He has won three Scudettos - two with Juve and one with Lazio in 2000 (only their second-ever).

    Before coming to Serie A, Nedved had played four seasons with Sparta Prague. He first caught the eye of the big Italian clubs during the Czech Republic's run to the Euro96 final. In that tournament, he scored an early goal against Italy on their way to upsetting the Azzurri, who failed even to make it out of the group phase.

    Marek Jankulovski is rumored to join Juventus. He might be understudy to Nedved.

    He wants to move

    I was watching Football Mundial on FSW, and Nedved said that he wants to eventually go to a team in the Czech Republic(I think he said Prague).

    I could easily see Nedved being sold. I mean seriously, this is Juventus we're talking about. Juve is always willing to part with big names, especially after they hit 30. If Chelsea is seriously willing to put up £28m at the end of this season, I wouldn't be surprised if he was sold.

    No time soon buddy. That would be in the twilight of his career. He still has at least 2 -3 more seasons with Juve

    Spanman, notice I said eventually, which means he is staying.

    Inzaghi is a headline grabbing bitch. I remember an away game ( Venezia I think) when Inzaghi twice slid in front of Del Piero to get an easy tap in and then had his celebration show, you know, running away from his teammates, grimacing as if he had just saved the world.

    a real joke, if there ever was one

    what a joke.
    i'm gutted.

    what is ronaldo doing there over nedved?
    and i thought the second best player at real after zidane for the past few seasons was raul.

    i think juve should just go on and win the CL this year.
